Here’s a demo that appears on the compilation CD of 1998.
There is lambswool under my naked feetThe wool is soft and warmGives off some kind of heatA salamander scurries into flame to be destroyedImaginary creatures are trapped in birth on celluloidThe fleas cling to the golden fleeceHoping they'll find peaceEach thought and gesture are caught in celluloidThere's no hiding in memoryThere's no room to avoidThe crawlers cover the floor in the red ochre corridorFor my second sight of people, they've more lifeblood than beforeThey're moving in time to a heavy wooden doorWhere the needle's eye is winking, closing on the poorThe carpet crawlers heed their callers:"We've got to get in to get outWe've got to get in to get outWe've got to get in to get out"~ The Carpet Crawlers (The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway by Genesis)https://youtu.be/2yUN6CsuVPw
